Sam Amick of USA Today Sports had the tweet heard 'round Mavs Twitter:
The structure of Ariza's deal, however, is cause for concern. The good value on the deal means that Dallas' offer might easily still be matched:
Ariza's deal fully guaranteed,& it appears the Rockets may - MAY - still match on Chandler Parsons & play him as a stretch four at times.— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) July 12, 2014
Overall, I suppose better that Ariza was signed than not signed, but the value will leave us guessing. And certainly, Houston will be in no rush to let Dallas know of their plans until the last possible second.
Stay tuned, kids!
